Ongard (the young elephant in this photo) is part of Melbourne zoo's elephant captive breeding programme to help preserve the endangered Asian elephant. His name represents "boldness" and was born 10 September 2010. During this photo shoot, Ongard was playing with sister Mali and it got out of hand so mum came along grabbed him by the truck and moved him away. Where possible, please help in the conservation of Asian elephants
